Gwinney, could you please delete this entry.

For some reason when I go to upload the .gif fark keeps telling me that it is over 900k and rejects the entry.  However, the .gif is clearly only 460k...

...although now the plot thickens.  It was 460k when I uploaded the file to photobucket but when I do a right click "save as" from photobucket back to my machine the file is suddenly 900k!   What gives?  Anyone else having problems with photobucket doubling the size of your .gifs?  This is never happened to me before.  Odd.

Hi all. Dumb question.  I wanted to call on the power of Fark for Photoshops and/or captions as a prank to play on someone.  Is that an appropriate Photoshop contest subject?  Here is the 'O' in question.

Ennuipoet: I mean if the WORST happened and it bolted for freedom, you could probably catch it.


operative word "you" there. for instance with my COPD over a distance it would escape. as ban_sidhe says they can be pretty quick.

ok i'm really not as enfeebled as that sounded but i don't run to get the mail anymore. i walk, sedately, enjoying the day and my yard.

My main question was did he REALLY need a leash for a turtle?  I mean if the WORST happened and it bolted for freedom, you could probably catch it.

Not if there is a lot of undergrowth and definitely not if she makes it to the water - which of course she would, being aquatic and all.

I was having problems with them cutting the file sizes and resolution in half. If their math is bad one way, it's probably bad in the opposite. All over now though, my CC on file with them expired. So I'm going to Flickr and hope that my free account bandwidth holds up on stuff that is already posted. Geordles report on what the BBB had to say about them is accurate in my time with them.

grampy: <proud papa>
After putting two kids through college and have never held decent jobs, I was elated to hear this evening that my third offspring who graduates in less than two weeks has just landed a full-time internship. It's with a Fortune 500 company where she will be pulling down a great salary doing a job that is exactly like what she's been wanting.

This is why you should leash your aquatic turtle. Presuming you take your aquatic turtle on walks, of course.

That's one of those leatherback turtles i think, their necks are as long as their bodies, stay way back from then when the turbo engages

 I don't know what that means.


Actually, I don't know either George. Apparently my wife tells me this a.m. that I was "off" yesterday. In other words, I was being an asshole and other things. I don't mean to be, and it doesn't happen very often. Apparently I tried to buy a new lawn tractor over the phone yesterday with her credit card. I am certain she said I could....the transaction declines of course. WTF? She was not happy.
I did the same thing last year by booking a cruise in the Caribbean, which I was sure was okay with her...oops. Never went.
You can see why she keeps me in the bedroom in front of my computer....
Much better today. Thank you Fark!

It's all good. It seemed like you thought I had stuck you in the ignore button world of ghosts and vapors. Enjoy these times and remember that you can get away with a lot when you know what's going on. I have a relative that I am quite sure uses her early stage Alzheimers when she just wants to mess with people and is actually in a lucid state. Might as well I say.

Life has conspired against me.
Total Fark is running out - but work is getting absolutely crazy. This it isn't really a problem. I have so little time, I have not been able to 'shop. So I think I'll stay away for a while. Unless I regain some time and inspiration. Between work, the pending divorce, Toastmasters and Family committments, my life remains full.
No offence.

I'm sorry to say that there are six current contests that I had hosted the O's that may show up with 'bandwidth exceeded' placeholder sometime between now and tomorrow morning. The last one went live yesterday, so they are past the initial surge of viewership, but I don't imagine that will stop the inevitable conclusion to my time with the reliable shiattty Photobucket service.

I guess we're all busy. Weather has been nice up here in my neck of the woods.
Also, a big wind knocked the power out for about 6 hours. I hate that.

As an aside....I note that its interesting that a few "purists" have been using Lootie lately. ?

So, as in "older generation" you must be referring to old farts who are on the plus side of my 57 yrs.? If that is the case then I would expect you to be wearing pants, long sleeve shirt and Cardigan in 90 degree weather.
